I've Been Loving You Too Long - Otis Redding [the version on Otis Blue is better, but this will do fine]

and for the season:
Greensleeves - John Coltrane

This thread has Queen- we will rock you written all over it. Mostly because of childhood memories and the beat. STOMP, STOMP, CLAP.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, I'm going to mop the floor with your face.
I said, You'll be sorry.
He said, Oh, yeah? Why?
I said, Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well.

Sting- Fields of Gold

Fields of Gold is the perfect song

Def Leppard- Love Bites

I love the backing vocals in this, and the ending is spectacular

All American Rejects- Sunshine

The hooks in this song are amazing. The whole melody is fantastic!

Tom Petty- Dont Come Around Here No More

The absolute BEST Tom Petty song

Nine Inch Nails- Leaving Hope


This song, and A Warm Place by Nine Inch Nails are the only two songs that have almost moved me to tears.

Honorable Mentions: U2- Where The Streets Have No Name 30 Seconds To Mars- Echelon Marilyn Manson- Devour Snow Patrol- Run Metallica- Whiskey in the Jar (This to me is one of metallica's best songs even though its a Thin Lizzy cover) Pink Floyd- Learning to Fly

Thank you for Clannad...one of my favorite groups. Their sound is haunting and beautiful.

One of my favorite pieces is Loreena McKennitt's "Bonny Portmore". You will find it in the third "Highlander" movie.

This is a strange one maybe, but one of the most haunting songs I've ever heard and I love it. It's from a movie called Time of the Gypsies, which is also a haunting movie. It's by a very famous composer - Goran Bregovic who is Serbian.

He also has some beautiful tangos:



An epic song that gives me chills is No One Knows by Queens of the Stoneage, I love the crescendo in this song, especially in the version with the orchestra which I can't find on Youtube.



Speaking of Queen - someone mentioned We Will Rock You - the song I would say gives the most shivers is The Show Must Go On. It's an excellent song, heartbreaking. And Freddie's voice is enough to give anyone shivers in any song.

And another one. This is the theme to Last of the Mohicans done on bagpipes. Got this one from Ross, he plays it all the time & it's very haunting...as is imo almost all music on bagpipes. Give it a listen.

Yeah, you can always count on a song from a video game to make a list like this.

Speaking of which, if you're a Nobuo Uematsu fan (composed the music for the FF series, until leaving after FFX), then you should check out some of the songs from Lost Odyssey from the Xbox360. It's a very Final Fantasy-ish game, and N.U. composed the music for it as well. A few songs to look for would be "A Formidable Enemy Appears", "A Sign Of Hope" and "Demonic Infringement". (I'll try and provide links when I'm home from work).


Oooh, I shall have to check that out. I absolutely love Nobuo's work. When I first played Super Smash Brothers Brawl and the main theme played, I thought to myself, "No...couldn't be..." and yep, he composed that too. Amazing talent.

I'm familiar with Sigur Ros, but only because of a cover of "Ny Batteri" that Thursday did (on the Japanese import for "War All The Time"). Now I'm even more intrigued.

This is one of those songs that affects me every time I hear it. The first time I heard it I was in the car and ended up in tears trying to see where I was going, but I think that's what makes a good song. If it brings out those emotions, whether happy or sad it's good.

As the majority of the music I actively listen to is extremely heavy most of my "favs" do not align with most people's tastes. But as far as a tune that really gets me, and from seeing them live 8 times, and thousands of others really pumped, Dig by Mudvayne. I have yet to see a crowd explode into chaos for 3 minutes like I have when Chad starts off, "CAN YOU DIG IT?!?!?!".

There are quite a few other songs that strike chords in me for other reasons, more to follow.

Ex:
-Nickelback, Side of a Bullet - tribute to Dimebag Darrel (his death hit me pretty hard)
-Mudvayne, King of Pain - I am a pretty big Sting/Police fan and this adaptation I really enjoy
-REM, Everybody Hurts - This tune was big right around the time my cousin was run over by a semi
-Black Label Society, In this River - refer back to Dimebag's murder

A little late, but as promised...

A Formidable Enemy Appears!.
(I mention this song simply for everything from 2:16 onwards. This song is one of about 3 or 4 different "boss" themes, much like FFX had 3 or 4 different boss songs).

A Sign of Hope. Classic Uematsu.


Demonic Infringement.


Gongora's Plot.
(Very reminiscent of Seymour Guado's theme from FFX, with good reason, played during appearances by an enemy that's very Seymour-esque.)

A Return, Indeed...


"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Evanescence - My Immortal

Evanescence My Immortal
Avril Lavigne - Slipped Away
A girl that danced at my dance studio lost her brother who was only 23 in a motorcycle accident and she and a guy from the studio choreographed a dance to this song. The first time I saw this dance, they ran through it during one of my classes and one of the guys turned to me and said - You're going to cry when you see this. I did, each and every single time I saw it. It was profoundly moving.
Slipped Away

I love Fields of Gold as well.. that is my hands down favorite Sting song.

Don't worry about losing. If it's right, it happens. The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away. Steinbeck
Dance is nothing until it's on a beautiful body - Wade Robson
What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
In life as in the dance: Grace glides on blistered feet. - Alice Abrams

Song written for Casey Bernall, the girl in the Columbine massacre who was shot after saying "Yes" when one of the shooters pointed a gun at her head and asked if she believed in God.



Regardless of your religious beliefs, it's hard not to admit that that video and song were both pretty moving.
